After several minutes,
His search was soon interrupted, however, when he found the Kenwood kMix Boutique he thought he'd lost in a bumskating contest two years ago.
"What you looking for Dunc?" called Tancred, his eyes never breaking from the captivating episode of Judge Joe Brown on the tellybox.
"Great news!" replied
"The one you thought you lost a couple years back to Kev in that stair-sliding challenge?" asked

It also says it comes with a one-year guarantee, though given how long it might have been in there I'm not sure if it's still going anymore!"
As the group were sharing a round of joyous laughter, Florence pointed excitedly at the device. "Oh, wow! Look! It even has an illuminated power switch to let you know when it's on or off!"

"Guys?" said Duncan. "Why are we watching an old recording of Granada Breeze?"
